everything is illuminated

The dream of angels dreaming of men:

"Angels were sleepwalking up and down the rungs of a ladder, their eyes closed, their breath heavy and dull, their wings hanging limp at the sides. I bumped into an old angel as I passsed him, waking and startling him. He looked like my grandfather did before he passed away last year, when he would pray each night to die in his sleep. Oh, the angel said, I was just dreaming of you"
